As decided in House Bill 49, dietitians will be licensed through the State Medical Board of Ohio beginning January 21, 2018. The State Medical Board of Ohio is working to keep licensees as informed as possible during this transition. Please check back on this webpage for updates over the next several weeks.


License Renewal
If you have not already registered in eLicense, please do so as this is the portal where you will go to apply for and renew licenses. It will also provide you and your employers with printable and electronic license verification. This is also where the Medical Board will access your contact information (email) for electronic communications.


Advisory Council Members
HB49 authorizes the creation of a dietetics advisory council as part of the State Medical Board of Ohio. The board is currently taking applications from individuals interested on serving on that council. Visit for the application and additional instructions. Applications are due Dec. 22, 2017 (extended from original deadline of Dec. 1).
